    Summary

    Altea Shepard has saved the galaxy twice now but that doesn't help when she's blown up an entire system, including the Batarian homeworld. Forced to turn herself over to the Alliance, she ends up confined to a jail cell, stripped of her rank and her ship with only James Vega to keep her company.

    James didn't know what he was signing up for by becoming Altea Shepard's jailor. He had respected her, looked up to her for so long. But she isn't quite what he thought she was. The image the Alliance presented of her was always stoic, respectful and the girl he met the first day, anything but.

    This story will follow Shepard's confinement, then move to in-game content.

    **Will update on Sundays.

    Summary

    All she ever wanted was her bondmate back. Her life was nothing without him. And she's lived with that thought in her mind for two years. His last memory was her anguished face as he drifted away from her, quickly losing oxygen. When Cerberus gives him his life back, all he can think about is finding her. But so much goes wrong. Bringing bondmates back together after two years, after death, would be easy if all it took was their fierce and undying love.

She is forced to attempt to keep the peace between the Arishok and the Viscount of Kirkwall, and between the very tense Mages and Templars.

    Summary

    Soulmarks are ever changing. They always have been, and they always will be. No one knows why they appeared, or even when, just that they merely are. The little marks can be anything, from a picture, to a symbol, to a word, or even a phrase; but no matter what, it will always symbolize the being they belong to. And that is the challenge. Soulmarks belong to anyone, and everyone. Some are platonic, some are romantic, some are a bond of brotherhood. They change, too, shifting in and out as time passes by.

    But the one thing that remains, is always constant, is the fact that you will only have a mark if you will meet that person. If you never meet someone, you will never bear their mark on your skin. It has always been as simple as that. Those that are born before you will not bear your mark until your own birth.

    Death is another constant. Upon the end of the other half of the bond, the mark will shatter, removing itself from the owner's skin. It's painless, and some never even realize a mark is gone; for it has long since been replaced by another one.

    Life is fleeting, and soulmarks even more so.

    Summary

    Was it fate or destiny that brought him to where he was now? Was it fate that brought him to Elysium? Was it fate that brought him to the Normandy? Was it destiny that brought him to beat Saren and the Collectors? And perhaps the most common question: was it his destiny to have defeated the Reapers and saved the galaxy? Or was it just a matter of fately steps that led him to that course? These were the questions the galaxy asked after the day was won. Those were the questions the eternally grateful galaxy asked after Commander Shepard disappeared.

    After Shepard saves the galaxy from the Reapers, he is somehow thrown into the world of Thedas. There he finds a new world’s growing list of problems. Instead of sitting out this one, he charges into battle in order to help out his new allies and do his part in saving this new world of aliens and monsters. Who knew he’d have to save the world yet again? That is, if he doesn’t get killed by magic or dragons or whatever the hell that giant hole in the sky is. Garrus sure owes him that drink.

    Summary

    John Shepard's life was not going as he mapped it out. He was supposed to be finishing his doctorates in zoology and tromping around planets discovering and categorizing new fauna. Instead of poking things with sticks, he had let Anderson talk him into two more years of service as his XO on a shiny new experimental frigate. Now he found himself commanding that frigate as a Spectre with a weird new crew of aliens and marines. Thankfully a certain handsome turian was around to help with his awkward flailing. That is, if the commander could work up the courage and ask the damn man out.

    Summary

    Carrie Shepard became the first human Spectre and saved the Citadel, leaving herself a legacy. And then she was lost in an attack on the Normandy.

    And as far as she is concerned, a resurrection putting her in the pocket of the enemy is not at all an acceptable alternative to death.
